Will Congress suffer in North India due to anti Sikh riot issue?

Today, Congress faced major seatback and embracement publically when a Sikh Journalist throw shoe on senior Congress leader and Indian home minister P Chidambaram during a press conference. This journalist Jarnail Singh, who is a senior journalist of Hindi News Paper Dainik Jagran, lost his control when P Chidambaram refused to give satisfactory answer to his question related to 1984 anti Sikh riots and CBI clean chit to Jagdish Tytler and finally throw his shoe on him.

This whole issue is likely to significantly affect hopes of Congress in states like Delhi and Punjab. Congress has also given tickets to two leaders Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar from Delhi who are believed to have taken part in anti Sikh 1984 riots. Both of these issues have clearly increased anger of Sikh community people against Congress. Earlier, Congress was likely to give good show in Delhi and get some come back in Punjab; however, this issue is likely to affect these dreams of Congress in these states. There are total 20 Loksabha seats in Punjab and Delhi and Congress was earlier hopeful of winning more than 10 seats out of them.

Now if present situation prevailed in these two states then number of Congress seats from these two states can decrease to less than 5 seats. Congress is facing lots of such problems in numbers of states; therefore any loss of seats can easily decrease hopes of Congress to make next government at centre. At present, it looks that time is not good for Congress and Congress can taste big setback in these elections.
